In the discussion on this meta question, I made a comment in passing that I thought there were too many CW questions on the site at present.
While this may be a transient phenomenon while the site is being seeded, I thought it brought up important issues about whether certain questions should be CW or just closed.
So my question is:
What is a clear policy to determine which questions should be deemed CW, which answers should be made CW, and which questions should just be closed ?
As a reference point for discussion, I'll refer people to this meta thread on MO, where many of the issues we're facing have been discussed.
In keeping with the spirit of that discussion, since I do think that there is a good answer and that people's direct experiences are helpful, I'm NOT making this CW. I also think that the reduction in points for upvotes on questions actually makes me more comfortable about this, since my ability to acquire rep points is limited in comparison to people with good answers.
